A Canadian Celebration of Life, Laughter, Love, and Praise
The renowned Toronto Children’s Chorus, under the direction of Jean Ashworth Bartle, celebrates Canada from coast to coast, with sea shanties, folksongs and other works, by some of Canada’s best known composers, including Srul Irving Glick, Harry Freedman and Allister MacGillivray.
"The music ranges from Mozart and Pergolesi to Imant Raminsh and Srul Irving Glick... Toronto could hardly have asked for better-prepared, more enthusiastic-sounding ambassadors ’Down Under’."
William Littler - Toronto Star
"The disc’s subtitle says it all. And after listening to this "celebration," your heart will certainly be soaring... It’s always impressive to hear young voices trained to such a high standard, and to bear such confident singing and sensitive ensemble... This is a first rate recording that takes a place of equal importance beside two other programs that should be in your collection-Dancing Day and Mostly Britten, also on Marquis Classics."
David Vernier - Choral Review
